The whole might of the Russian agricultural complex is introduced in Ufa and the President RB made certain of that today. He visited the XX specialized exhibition “AGROCOMPLEX-2010”. The head of the Republic arrived in the Ufa Sport Center, escorted by the Prime-Minister of Government RB Rail Sarbaev, the head of the Presidential Administration Nikolai Kurapov and the first deputy Prime-Minister, Minister of agriculture RB Shamil Vahitov.

There is no room to move inside the Sport Palace — 180 firms and enterprises from many Russian regions are ready to share their wares, ideas and technological designs in the agrarian sphere.
The President RB halted near the stand of the poultry farm “Rhodonite”. During more than 10 years this farming is engaged in selection of meat and meat-egg hens. “Preservation of the gene fund is the priority of our activity” – the director of the farming Alexander Zorin said, talking to the head of the Republic and added, saying many thanks for his support – “We would hardly be able to make all our plans a reality if not the timely support of the state”.
The President RB has become acquainted with many exhibits and had talks with the representatives of the companies – the producers of the agricultural machinery. As the President RB believes, the main aim of the exhibition is sharing of experience and attraction of investments to Russian agriculture. The enterprises of the Bashkir agricultural complex are always open for cooperation and establishment of mutually beneficial contacts, the head of the Republic is certain.
